Hats Off! to NCWN communications director Charles "LC" Fiore who recently finished Season 1 of his new venture, The A440 Podcast, which examines interesting aspects of music through interviews, features, special episodes, and more. The ten episodes include interviews with a composer for film score and media; a crafter of hand-wound pick-ups for Stratocasters and Telecasters; a Bay Area musican and music analyst for Pandora; and much more. Subscribe anywhere you listen to podcasts!

Hats Off! to Wim Coleman and Pat Perrin who have been added to the North Carolina Literary Map. The Map lists the authors' mainstream novels, anthologized works, and many of the titles from their years of making a living writing for educational publishers. The list includes three works of nonfiction and seventeen novels (so far). The mission of the North Carolina Literary Map, housed in the University of North Carolina at Greensboro University Libraries, is to highlight the literary heritage of the state by connecting the lives and creative work of authors to real (and imaginary) geographic locations. The criteria for inclusion focuses on works written about North Carolina and authors who were born in North Carolina, who currently live or have lived in North Carolina, who have written about North Carolina, or who have made a significant contribution to the North Carolina's literary landscape.


Hats Off! to Maureen Sherbondy who won the Poet Laureate Award from the North Carolina Poetry Society. Her poem was selected by NC Poet Laureate and NC Literary Hall of Fame inductee Jaki Shelton Green. In addition, Maureen's work was recently published in Litro, Prelude, Fredericksburg Literary and Art Review, Eastern Iowa Review, WigLeaf, Jet Fuel Review, and Waccamaw. Her work also is forthcoming in The Oakland Review, Jelly Bucket, and other journals.
